Life Doesn’t Frighten Me

image

Shadows on the wall 
Noises down the hall 
Life doesn’t frighten me at all 

Bad dogs barking loud 
Big ghosts in a cloud 
Life doesn’t frighten me at all 

Mean old Mother Goose 
Lions on the loose 
They don’t frighten me at all 

Dragons breathing flame 
On my counterpane 
That doesn’t frighten me at all. 

I go boo 
Make them shoo 
I make fun 
Way they run 
I won’t cry 
So they fly 
I just smile 
They go wild 

Life doesn’t frighten me at all. 

Tough guys fight 
All alone at night 
Life doesn’t frighten me at all. 

Panthers in the park 
Strangers in the dark 
No, they don’t frighten me at all. 

That new classroom where 
Boys all pull my hair 
(Kissy little girls 
With their hair in curls) 
They don’t frighten me at all. 

Don’t show me frogs and snakes 
And listen for my scream, 
If I’m afraid at all 
It’s only in my dreams. 

I’ve got a magic charm 
That I keep up my sleeve 
I can walk the ocean floor 
And never have to breathe. 

Life doesn’t frighten me at all 
Not at all 
Not at all. 

Life doesn’t frighten me at all.

BURY ME

image
Tombstone

Bury  me,

Bury me,

Bury me,

Bury me,  but let it be that I left a stirring  mark in the sand of time. 
Bury me but let it be that regret was regretting over the verity that I have nothing to regret over. 
Let shame be ashamed for the simple truth that I have nothing to be shameful for. 
Bury me but not until:
I drained out my gift, 
Empty the vessel of my talent, 
Send my wealth on a voyage to service  for humanity,
Established an indestructible monument of a life burn out for a good cause.
Till the firmament
could crest my name in beautiful  colors of good memories, 
And my stars form a constellation of unbeatable  hall of fame. 
Bury me but wait till my epitaph could read:
This is a man who didn’t just do all his best,  but goes beyond what was called his best to leave a perdurable legacy. 
A man who when people thought his talent was buried didn’t know it was planted to yield a good fruit. 
A man who fought a worthy battle just to earn the world a deserving peace. 
A man who availed himself a tool of war, so the world can be a well meaning place. 
Bury me,  but wait  till all this is done.
